down the road. but you will find a lot of democrats who say if you can turn the obama coalition into a democratic coalition, then the democrats will have built in on the national stage pretty much what ronald reagan had for 20 years and the republican party had after ronald reagan on the national stage. this coalition, if he can transfer it over, it spells trouble for the republicans. >> congresswoman, what do you think about what john king was just saying? >> i don't -- i'm not privy to the president's processes and how he came up with the decision. all i can tell you is women have been dying and fighting and bleeding for this nation in combat jobs -- in combat roles in iraq and afghanistan. they may not have had those jobs specifically other than aviation, my branch of service, but they've been fighting in combat and they've been engaged in combat action. and i think that the last ten years of women serving in combat has finally pushed us to this point where you know, the pentagon's finally realized, look, women have served ably and it's time that we open up these fields. >> b
and their families down later this week. that is your 5@5:00. >>> president obama's job council may expire. >> the president's council on jobs and competitiveness have met twice in the white house once in durham north carolina and once in pittsburgh. they haven't met since january 17th of last year. since the same executive alreor that created the council has language in it that terminates the council today that council will go away unless the president reaut rides it. jay carney said yesterday even though the economy shrank in the 4th quarter it is still showing signs of life. oo there was positive economic growth in 2012 and 2011 and, you know, we continue to believe as outside forecasters believe that unless actions by those in washington take us in a different direction we will see positive economic growth and job creation this year. >> kevin brady sees things a little differently. he says this is a quote, this president's recovery ranked near the bottom in mainstream job creation. we are 3 million jobs below the prerecession peak of january 2008 and 4.3 short of an economic recovery.
go-to interview forum. "60 minutes" sitting down with steve kroft. president obama has preferred going and sitting down to steve kroft "60 minutes" more than any other television format interview person out there. steve kroft has got the interviews. >> yeah. [ laughter ] >> are you winding up? >> well, let me just say, the irony here is that "60 minutes," which i think is a quality show, it's put some good stuff on. clearly withheld the news from an interview with president obama back in september that turned out to be push for innovation no a presidential debate and i think had a bearing on this election. basically they interviewed president obama on september 129, the day after the benghazi attacks and the president said and i think i'm quoting it's too early to tell whether or not this is terror related. this became a real issue in the campaign, when the president retroactively said no i always described it as a terror attack. "60 minutes" had that footage and they did not air it at the time. they did not air it when the debate broke out when the president this a terror attack
news the white house announcing that this afternoon, president obama is going to sit down with secretary of state hillary clinton for an interview with steve kroft of cbs news that will air sunday night on 60 minutes. it's very unusual. it's for the president and the secretary of state to give an interview together. the first time the president has set done for an interview with anybody, not even with the vice president. sitting down for a joint interview with secretary clinton. i am sure they will cover a lot of the national security issues. he will be asked about benghazi, about the situation in northern africa and hillaryses tenure. >> it's clear he likes doing interviews with steve kroft. >> yes. >> he has done more with him than anybody else. i am not sure what the number is. >> bill: yeah. on a national level certainly. so that should be interesting to watch. you know i was disappointed today in -- the figure buster we thought we were going to see reform of the filibuster this year. we know how important it is. we know how broken the s
, a tiny. let me say something about the economy for a moment. it was, exhibit a -- obama is upside down in his approval ratings on every economic ratings measure. is accepted that he had a negative approval on taxes, spending, gas prices, he was upside down. we were not the only people who knew that. they were going to do something about that. then it was, the economy is number one to 42%. romney has been a job creator. he has made things. he has hired and fired people. he knows how things around. he will put that experience to washington. there are a couple of things wrong with that. one is, the economy by itself got romney and obama 43% and 42% each. you need over 50% to win. and i think we stopped right there. the obama keep -- the obama people kept adding more with abortion, hurricane sandy. they were able to get and realize that although the economy is the most important, that is not all. voters do not go into the ballot box and only choose one issue as to why -- where do people who believe in free well, human reason, and intelligence and your ability to walk, to gum, and a shovel
was taken down in 2006 and 28th not by a republican but barack obama. >> there is no barack obama at the moment. let's not make too many assumptions. in 1992, nobody wanted to run against george bush in the primary because they thought he was unbeatable. i think somebody will take her hon on if she runs. i think the white house and biden has a confluence of interest and the white house doesn't want to see biden lose his stature and biden doesn't want to lose his stature. biden wants to run and make himself presidential. >> i can't really look forward to 2016 because i can't even look past tomorrow. tomorrow's show, seriously, it is -- i always joke, it's like night of the thousand stars. look at this. willie, look, the mt. rushmore of whatever it is the mt. rushmore of. al gore and bill gates will be on tomorrow. we're looking forward to that. also, coming up today, we're talking to senators john mccain and chuck schumer about their proposals on immigration reform and whether they really think this time is different than last time and former senate majority leader, all around grea
. hillary never backed down. >> shame on you, barack obama. >> reporter: even when campaigning got ugly. not long after that clinton welled up at the new hampshire diner and ran away with the primary, another victory. in the end she conceded, wrapping up her historic presidential bid. >> although we weren't able to shatter that highest, hardest glass ceiling this time. >> reporter: her compassion persists the man she was trying to beat. the former first lady and senator from new york would become madam secretary in 2009. yet now a million air miles. >> 60,000 plus people all over the world, 275 posts. >> testifying about who knew what when in light of the attack on the compound. if history is any guide hillary clinton may emerge unscathed once again and reinvent herself. and of course we have all seen her reinvent herself over the years. this goes back 20 years because i started covering her when i was a reporter in little rock, arkansas in 1993. and i watched her go through white water and the questions about the suicide. she never backed down. you notice how even when the hits keep co
administration and the obama administration where they blame the united states for bringing down the rest of the world when it comes to its state of the economy. it looks like now things are almost reversed in a way. tell us about your conversation with cameron. >> when i interviewed prime minister cameron here in new york and he was sort of in the lion's den because he had thrown down the gauntlet with this speech about britain's position in the european union. britain is not fully in in terms of it is not part of the eurozone. it doesn't have the euro but in many aspects it is in and it is a full member. united states depends on britain for the very strong role in international affairs. it helps all over the place whether in trying to confront iran, syria and north korea with sanctions and plays a big role whether afghanistan, iraq. david cameron is saying we like our foreign role. we like you and our economic role in the e.u. but we don't want to be a part of your political role. he is trying to negotiate a half in/half out role for the u.k. that is very concerning to the u.s. because
election to turn the nation around before we go down the road to socialism. president obama and his socialist policies must be stopped. >> so the gop's slamming the president hard. they were supposed to be the gop fix-it party on the economy. your father was ridiculed by the far right for saying he could work along with the president. now that the economy's coming back from wall street and even signs on main street and areas that have been deprived, have the gop ruined their chance of coming back here? >> this is a very big deal for republicans. let's say, let's look four years ahead and say the economy continues to improve. the american people are honestly going to see the democrats and say we trust them on the economy and that we have some numbers to show for it. so the republicans have become very vulnerable of losing on the economy. what are the bread and butter issues of the republican party? that's limited freedom and the free market system. and those are two things, their key messaging that they are really losing control of which is so important to -- which is the reason they
on the right who had defected to obama, and i named them, and i said that i was going down with the mccain ship because i knew it would be going down and i wasn't going to waiver. i never imagined i would support obama over mccain. i was very strongly for mccain. i thought he was a very good man. he didn't run a very strong campaign. we seem to have a habit of doing that. but here's what's interesting about obama. if you remember the transition, he made very centrist appointments. he appointed a -- he had, for example, he kept gates at defense. he picked geithner for treasury who had worked and -- hand and glove with the bush administration through the financial crisis. he picked hillary as secretary of state, volcker was one of the major advisors. the former president of harvard, i'm getting -- summer was in treasury. these are not radical appointments. what's interesting about obama is when he ran in 2008 he ran as a rorschach test. he was a man into whom you could pour all of your own visions and hopes. he was not a very distinctly radical candidate when he ran. that was the brilliance of hi
. >> steve: it's cuba. at this time of year it's beautiful down there. >> gretchen: president obama just laid out his plans yesterday in las vegas to fix a broken immigration system. but the specifics could put him on a collision course now with congress. or will it? peter doocy live in washington with all the details. good morning to you. >> good morning. and there are a few big differences between what the president wants to do to reform immigration and what a bipartisan group of u.s. senators wants to do and a big one revolves around the pathway to citizenship. president obama yesterday during the first trip of his second term told a crowd in las vegas that the process for illegal aliens to become u.s. citizens should be a fast one. >> yes, they broke the rules. they crossed the border illegally. maybe they i don't have stayed their visas. those are the facts. nobody disputes them. but these 11 million men and women are now here. many of them have been here for years. >> but the senate plan, which president obama applauded but did not endorse since it hasn't been written yet, calls for sec
criminal conduct. the obama administration, like the bush administration, stomped down these lawsuits and day won. they got most of these lawsuits dismissed. it was a massacre. some of these losses were getting to a point where we ruling. acknowledge standing and say you cannot violate the privacy of citizens and president obama and his administration blocked it. we have seen that throughout the four years of the obama administration. what he actually does in court. gay-rights is a good example. inauguration is not the present we see in court. for the early part of his term, he was in court fighting to protect oma and don't ask, don't tell. support that view so there is a disconnect. public-interest litigator is like myself, this is an extremely hostile administration. there is no change between this administration and bush. this administration has been more successful in that sense. host: let's go to louisville, kentucky, independent line. caller: i am confused because i am getting background noise or something. i want to ask about the benghazi situation. in the hearings the other da
will produce $3 trillion in additional tax revenue to pay down deficits and the debt. by the way, that is more than barack obama hopes to get through his massive tax increases. there's more revenue through growth than there ever could be through tax increases, which is one of the ways, by the way, when i'm debating those on the left and they say they're for revenue, i inevitably agree. i'm for roirve, too. the best way to have revenue, i say, sit down with those in the business sector and i say i'd love to double your taxes. they look at me and think, did i come to the wrong meeting? i say i'd love for next year your profits to double and you would happily write twice as big a tax check. up want to pay down our debt, get the economy roaring, get people back to work, 4% growth for a decade, 3 million people would rise out of poverty and be standing on their own feet. we need to be unjet lick -- un jetically -- unalocal jetically the party of growth. we need to get back to growth and number two, we need to get back to opportunity. you know, if you could sum up what went wrong last election, i th
magic of the obama machine. there was no counterweight. >> if i could follow quickly -- macro politics -- we saw it in this election, and i was shocked by it. macro politics has got to be filtered down into micro targeting. we do not have a national election anymore. we did not have a national election for president this year. we had an election of about eight states. the obama people were smart enough to figure that out. republicans were not. they went into those eight states and mined data. they did it on facebook, twitter, in all these places. they killed us. they spent tens of millions of dollars -- chris christie's top aide went to him in june and said he had been looking at obama's records and that they were in trouble. millions and millions and millions of dollars finding people. it was the 2012 equivalent of what i did in 1994. i had no money, so i got the super republican list, and for a year, i went door-to-door and walked on doors of republicans that voted in primaries. i did not talk to anybody else for 18 months. my kids, my wife, a little bit, but outside of that -- but t
that could target the united states. >> even russia. forbarack obama's nominee secretary of defense wants america to back down. an end to our nuclear program, devastating defense cuts. call kay haga andn tell her to say no to chuck hagel before it is too late. host: "former senator chuck hage says he will make sure the u.s. military is prepared for any scenario in iran and is committed to all options to counter aggression from tehran. hagel also said he agrees with president obama's plans for steady reductions of u.s. troops in afghanistan, supports u.s. aid for missile systems and israel, and thinks sequester would be devastating, according to a wide-ranging policy answers the nominee for defense secretary submitted to the senate armed services committee. times ahead of the confirmation hearing on thursday." they have a link, the hill.com, to the 112-page document he submitted. "his advance responses to the policy questions shed light on what hagel will say at the hearing, when he will face appointed examination from senators who are opposed to or have raised concerns about his nominatio
that the university of chicago wants to buy that house, tear it down, and put up a parking lot. a parking lot -- a parking lot perhaps -- how ironic is this -- for the barack obama presidential library. >>brian: i blame the city of chicago. they should have made this a landmark. >>gretchen: they claim it is not a landmark, although they have delayed this process now a couple of times. the ronald reagan childhood home has survived now since december. they got a stay, so to speak, in january. it's still not exactly clear what is going to happen here, although the bulldozers are sitting nearby ready to go. what do you think about this story? should that happen or should it become a landmark? >>brian: or should the president say, listen, if my library, if i have to steam roll ronald reagan's house to build a library, i shouldn't have a library. maybe the president should decide. >>steve: it's not even a done deal yet. he hasn't picked a selection site, and the university of chicago is simply lobbying for it. e-mail us at friends at fox news. >>gretchen: how is this for a good use of your money? t
obama create his legacy which i'm sure he does not want to go down as the president that bankrupted america. so all of us around this table, regardless of our political stripes, have a great vested interest in helping him make sure that doesn't happen. and, of course, the role all of us can play in deciding what do we want to spend our government money on and be an influence so we can have our voices heard as to do we really want to send $55 million to indonesia to help improve the infant mortality rates in indonesia when we have babies here who could probably benefit from the same expenditure? i think that's about enough said. we're delighted to be a part of the american dream. i came out of the army with $800 of cumulative leave play, and the lord blessed it to get into sell of $100 million of net worth, and the success i've enjoyed comes from, i believe, three things. one is the fact that the workers or that god put in my life, 70 people who helped me pick stocks, interact with the clients and, secondly, was a hospitable governmental environment. you had a taxation and a regulato
. >> yeah, i don't either. i don't know how she passes on and turns the people down that want her to. >> how close to the surface is it as the father of daughters, i very much want her to run. the iconography if i of president obama is a success and even her run in 2008 was hugely important. how clear is she about her potentially historic role and the fact that as a woman she would become so important? >> it's part of the fabric of her life. she connects on that level in every single place she's visited, you know, 12 corrupts and almost a million miles. she always does a town hall meeting or a meeting with women. it's part of who she is, and she feels that historic role. i think when you look at it as a pragmatic political fact of life for democrats, notwithstanding the extraordinary role that will joe biden has played and continues to play as the partner to the president, this would be the one way to, after eight years of the obama administration, to be historic and somewhat of an outsider and a break-through candidate, and it would be one way to run against some new fresh blood in the repu
